GATHERING Signed Stone Lithograph, NYC Group Portrait Drawing, Light Brown

1977

$950

About

GATHERING is an original hand drawn stone lithograph by Raphael Soyer, the renowned Russian-born American realist painter, draftsman, and printmaker. Hand proofed and printed in 1977 by master printer Joseph Kleineman, JK Fine Art Editions Co. NY using light brown ink on Arches paper 100% acid free, from a traditional lithographic stone(which Joseph recalls carrying himself to Soyer's studio on Manhattan's Upper West Side). GATHERING depicts a sensitive, realistic NYC group portrait of young people, one couple entering the scene from the left holding hands, another couple making out in the background, and three women each facing a different direction in the foreground create an animated get-together that keeps the viewers attention. Soyer's masterly drawing style possesses a dynamic graphite pencil quality and quiet intimacy. GATHERING is a fine example of superb hand lithography printmaking at its best! Print size - 24 x 17.75 inches Image size - 19 x 14 inches Raphael Soyer(December 25, 1899 – November 4, 1987) was a painter, draughtsman, and printmaker who believed that "if art is to survive, it must describe and express people, their lives and times. It must communicate." Soyer is best known for picturing poverty stricken victims of the Great Depression in New York City, also for creating images of everyday urban life and of the nude female body.
